PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says the Philadelphia Union will host the 2012 MLS All-Star game at PPL Park. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because an official announcement has yet to be made.

A news conference has been scheduled for Tuesday at Philadelphia City Hall featuring MLS commissioner Don Garber, Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz, Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter and Chester, Pa., mayor John Linder.

Last year’s game was held at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., and featured top MLS players taking on Manchester United. PPL Park is located in Chester, along the Delaware River.
